reflect on the process by answering the following questions with detail please:!

2clicks, kidrex, non-fiction books or other sources?!

related to the topic and it gave me a hard time trying to find out more about silk although Kidrex
gave mesoe interesting websites that I stuck on to while doing my research process.!

troubling about it?!
I thought finding the topic of silk websites was the hardest- wonderopolis didnt give my that much

was a little frustrating.!

I learnt that they are many learning steps if you want to learn about a invention and that sometimes
it takes time and lots of frustration to get it done.
